When not in Britsih season, our onions are from Jean Claude and his team in Cadiz, in the very south of Andalusia. The farm is perfectly placed to grow a wide variety of vegetables, nestled between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic sea. It has a mixture of sandy soils, a legacy from the days when sea covered the land there, and more fertile soils on the banks of the rivers that flow from the mountains of Cadiz.
Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.
To avoid weeping buckets when it comes to chopping time, follow these tips:
- Chill your onions in the fridge before slicing - the colder they are, the better
- Use a sharp knife - blunt knives burst more of those tear-inducing onion cells
- Slice under a trickle of water - it helps wash away the pongy vapours
- Wear swimming goggles
Store your onions in the fridge, avoiding dampness, or in a cool dark larder.
